Green Up Day in Andover, Cavendish & Chester

Andover Green-Up Day from 9 a.m. to noon

Andover Green-Up day will be held 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 5. Residents and friends are invited to beautify the town grounds, clean the roadsides and spruce up the cemeteries. Meet at the Andover Town Hall, 953 Andover Road, to choose your work assignment. Coffee will be provided.

Participants are encouraged to bring gardening gloves and tools including wheelbarrows, rakes, clippers, loppers and leaf blowers and join in the community spirit.

After the work is over, participants are invited to stay to celebrate a job well done and share lunch with friends and neighbors. Attendees should bring a potluck salad or dessert to accompany the hot dogs and soft drinks that will be provided.
New friends, neighbors, and student volunteers are welcome.

Cavendish invites all to meet at Proctorsville Green

Cavendish will join hundreds  of communities throughout Vermont to support the 48-year-old tradition of picking up roadside trash accumulated over the winter on Saturday, May 5.

No special gear is required to join this family friendly event, just the desire to pitch in and clean up unsightly litter.  Come to the Proctorsville Green with friends and family on Saturday May 5 to pick up special green trash bags, protective gloves and your road assignment.

The big sweep begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon with a free town-sponsored barbecue on the Proctorsville Green, where hot dogs and hamburgers will be on the grill.  In case of a downpour, Green Up Day will be on Sunday May 6, same time, same place.

For more information call Diane McNamara at the Town Office at 226-7292.
